Upcoming Youth Events

Heifer Ranch Trip


June 12-14, 2019

Global Challenge uses problem-solving and communication activities to help participants learn team building and leadership skills. These skills can be drawn upon during the overnight village experience and used in their everyday lives at home.

This program includes a full Global Gateway program, two sessions of team building, meals in the dining hall and an overnight in the Heifer Hilton—an original barn on the main campus which has been converted into an open-air bunk barn. Guests enjoy the comfort of mattresses and plumbing alongside the novelty of sleeping above and beside our friendly livestock!

(Ripple Effect)



What is Creative Ministry? It is sharing the Good News of Jesus through puppet, props, dance, skits, parody music… the list goes on.

Who can participate? Kids from 6th grade on up to adults. If your shy, puppetry is the perfect way for you to contribute to the worship experience at ELC.

If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, we would love to help you get involved. Adults are needed to help with practices and planning.  Kids that participate grow in their faith and grow closer to their friends in the group through the Fun and Fellowship. Let Betty know if your interested in making a commitment to this ministry.

Betty Metcalf has directed puppet groups in the past, and it really needs more than one leader to be successful.  If you are interesting in participating in the group,please contact Betty by by phone or email. [Note! website policy precludes us from listing personal contact information.  Her information can be found in the Church Directory or by calling the Church Office (479-442-4030)]
